Noted artist of the Harlem Renaissance, author and activist Langston Hughes brought the rhythms of jazz and the blues to his poetry of everyday African American life in the 1920s. Hughes drew on the quintessential sounds pioneered by black musicians to portray the struggles and triumphs of working mothers, domestic laborers, and the unemployed. Hughes' work celebrates the strength of his community to flourish in spite of racism and economic hardship.

Northeast Branch (Independence)

The Northeast Branch first opened in February of 1993. In November 2009, the Warren County Freeholders purchased the Best Fruit Farm Building as the future home of the branch. After a year of renovations, in May 2011, staff and a group of 153 volunteers moved the branch to our new location. The new facility has become a community center with its meeting rooms, public access computers, and quiet reading area. We strive to offer programs of interest to both children and adults as well as being a focal point for community interaction.
